You probably won't get a performance increase, I'd even go so far as saying that you'll get a decrease in performance.

Why?
Because there is no SLI/Loop cable to connect the two cards, all data has to be transferred through the PCI bus and AGP bus which will severely limit bandwidth.

Someone with a technical background might explain it a bit better though
